I'm Nottingham born and bred so I remember the "old" market sqare, which also had fountains ( mainly used for a dip by drunken youths at the weekend, but they were ornimental so no kiddies playing in them !. I'm not sure that this water feature we have now was accually designed for kids to paddle in either though !. Looks a little too slippy....but it's nice to look at. Agree with afore mentioned "look up" because some of the buildings are amazing, or try a different veiw from the 1st floor of yates's. Lovely on a summers day,cool drink in hand, watching the hussle and bussle of the city below. The "old" old market sqare had seating, now we are expected to sit on marble stone and the loo's have disappeared into a side street that's not easy to find. The old loo's were where the water feature is now.Still its worth a look and only a short walk from the castle and the brewhouse yard museum.

I feel sorry for the councillors. They try so hard to provide attractions and amenities but it's wasted on the chavs who hang out there and spoil the ambience.

Looks untidy and dirty, all the character has been taken away. There is even a load of filthy tents and lean too's in the square
